GOOD MORNING MONDAYS LINK UP

Hey there everyone, welcome back to our Good Morning Mondays Link Up.

What a week we’ve had, it started busy and ended busy but it was great all over.

Last Sunday we celebrated our granddaughters and our no 1 son’s birthdays together and I had managed to finish a cardigan off for our granddaughter. It was in her favourite colours and she really liked it. Every time I’ve seen her since she’s been wearing it, which really blesses me. It was late night finishing it but it was well worth it.We had a great night together with family and extended family, it was chaotic and noisy, but fun.

The eisteddfod started on Monday with the children on the piano for the day. They had a great time and it is always fun for them, and they enjoy it. They did get good results and received a bit of prize money for some sections which is an added bonus. On the Tuesday night our no 2 son did his first singing section, actually it was an accompaniment section and his no 2 sister played the piano. He was really nervous doing the singing but he did a good job and they got 1st place as well.

We managed two days home this week and my motivated amazing husband and our no 2 son planted carrots.They had already worked up the ground and our son went through and flame weeded in front of my husband sowing the seed. I think he’s going to plant some more in a few weeks too.

Our chickens are growing and we now have them for sale as they have started laying. The weather has been so nice with cold mornings and sunny days I think the chickens are confused.

My husband had his usual father’s course on Thursday night and then on Friday afternoon we were out meeting with our friends for Bible reading and then the children had their bible class and then it was the Eisteddfod again that evening.

This time it was singing and our no 2 son did a good job and got an honourable mention and then we were totally blown away when the adjudicator awarded him an encouragement award.  He was so excited and so honoured.

Here he is with his certificate

This award came with some money to help towards his tuition which is always very handy and we are very thankful for it.

Our daughter sang on Saturday morning and although she didn’t receive a placing she did a great job and we were so blessed by her attitude. I think after her first song her father and I were both in tears. They are both now planning for next year’s eisteddfod and the songs they want to sing, which is great considering how nervous they were.

We then had lunch on Saturday with our son-in-law, daughter and their children which is always good and it was nice to sit down and talk after a busy week. Our no 1 daughter had accompanied the children on the piano for their singing and did a great job too.

Sunday was another busy day with the graduation of one of my husbands Good 2 Great Fathers course. We went to a different church and the men were presented with their certificates and prayed for, we then enjoyed lunch together and had the concert. A couple of the acts were really funny and it was enjoyed by all.

Sunday was also our no 2 daughter’s 13 birthday and we are so blessed by her. We don’t have a teenager we have a beautiful young lady in our house who is such a great help to me and does a great job with her chickens and outside stuff. She is growing up so quickly.

Our no 2 son has been away for a few days up north. He is courting a beautiful Christian young lady and he was spending some time with her at a Bible Boot Camp. Life changes very quickly and sometimes my emotions don’t quite keep up and it’s worse if I’m tired.

My husband is almost back to normal, he is still tired but has been back at work and not allowing what happened to keep him down. He’s amazing.

Okay that’s our week, onto our link up…Musings: May 2018 by Living Our Days All-Natural Blue Banana Milk – Dairy-Free by Sew Historically5 Must-Dos For An Eczema Free Baby by G & E

Thanks everyone for stopping by and linking up, I hope you enjoyed your visit.

I would love to say that I’ve got a totally free week this week but it’s not so, all good stuff though.

Monday I’m home – yay – at least until tea time and then we’re joining with family to celebrate a couple of birthdays and then it’s onto our Marriage Course.

Wednesday a few of our church ladies are getting together to learn how to put together Days 4 Girls packs. This is a very worthwhile ministry that some of our ladies are going to take on and do. So many girls in underprivileged countries have no supply of feminine hygiene products so this organisation has started making and supplying them in packs. We are going to be sewing them up and hopefully putting the packs together. We have our training session on Wednesday and then we’re off.

Thursday is book group and we’re up to Strategy 5 – Our Past. I know when we saw that we all went – ugg, but we need to learn to not let satan rob us of our joy because of our past and we need to remember to live in God’s grace and forgiveness.

After that it’s a normal Friday and weekend with Bible class, piano lessons and church. It’ll be nice to get back there this Sunday after being somewhere else today.

Our Marriage Course last week was dealing with forgiveness and it was a great topic to work through and really grasp the need for us to forgive and move on.

Okay my friends that’s it for this week and I’m looking forward to hearing how you have all been.

Have a great week!!!

Numbers 6:24-26 “The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.”

Blessings my friends xxxx

  1. That cardigan is so lovely, and you do great work. And it’s wonderful that your family is so musically talented! Congratulations! We had the great news this week that my youngest son got the role he auditioned for in the fall musical, so he’s got a lot of lines to learn and a lot of singing and choreography ahead of him.
    Planting carrots is one of my least favorite parts of gardening. Those tiny seeds are such a challenge to put in the right places. I noticed yesterday that ours are beginning to sprout.
    I did a lot of weeding yesterday, and it was very satisfying!
    By my reckoning you will soon be beginning your quiet Monday, and I hope it’s wonderful!

    1. Hey there Michele, thank you so much for the comments on the cardigan and our children’s musical ability, they really blessed me. I am so pleased for your son and it should be hard work but fun for him in the musical, he must be very talented. Yes carrot seeds are very tiny and I’m glad that my husband and son did that planting. They use a machine so it’s not so bad and it helps keep the rows reasonably straight. Weeding is very satisfying and makes you feel like you are accomplishing something. Thank you again and may God bless you this weekend. xxxx

    1. Thank you so much Lisa for your kind words, she is a beautiful granddaughter inside and out. I’m just finishing up a beanie in the same colours for her to match as I had a bit of wool left over and I’m waiting on some needles to arrive to start a cardigan for her sister. I hope you are keeping well. Blessings
